More Details About Planning Your Group Stay at Lifebridge

Set amidst 95 acres of Hudson Valley woodland, the Lifebridge Sanctuary retreat center offers a unique place for organizational workshops, gatherings, milestone celebrations, strategic planning sessions, and educational meetings, as well as a haven for board or staff retreats. 

Lifebridge Sanctuary’s buildings are created with creativity, mindfulness, and devotion to detail. The original Dutch Stone House of 1726 was thoughtfully restored and enhanced with 21st-century green building features to become the building you experience today.  

We welcome you to join us at this intentionally designed sanctuary, offering an ideal, private setting for participants to engage in transformational work of all kinds, from yoga retreats to group work, held in a nature-based setting.
